Nothing more than a footnote
24 July 1978
You want to know about me? Really? Hmm, well then. I live in a rather nice suburb of Manchester in a house with the ever lovely sleep_er. We own the house and are owned by a cat (who thinks he's a parrot), called Gabriel. In our opinion he is the most amazing cat ever, but we *are* biased. I like chocolate, and fluxx, and purple soup. I don't get out socialising nearly as much as I'd like. I work in IT. Yep, that about covers it!

This is pretty much a friends only journal. If I know you or if you are a friend of a friend then I will probably be happy to add you. I do however reserve the right to remove, without warning, anyone who seems to have no interest in me / my life /what I have to say.

Contact details are here as a restricted readership post.

"From solitude in the womb, we emerge to solitude among our Fellows, and return again to solitude within the Grave. We pass our lives in the attempt to mitigate that solitude. But Propinquity is never fusion. The most populous City is but an agglomeration of wildernesses. We exchange Words, but exchange them from prision to prison, and without hope that they will signify to others what they mean to ourselves. We marry, and there are two solitudes in the house instead of one; we beget children, and there are many solitudes. We reiterate the act of love; but again propinquity is never fusion. the most intimate contact is only of Surfaces"
After Many a Summer, Aldous Huxley

"Everyone’s alone in their world, because everyone’s life is different. You can send people letters, and show them photos, but they can never come to visit where you live.
Unless you love them. And then they can burn it down."

Only Forward, Michael Marshall Smith

"Pain too, is a joy . . . Have you ever said yes to a single joy? . . . then you said yes too to all woe. All things are entangled, ensnared, enamoured. If you ever wanted one thing twice, if you ever said "you please me happiness! Abide moment!" then you wanted back all. All anew, all eternally, all entangled, ensnared, enamoured - oh then you loved the world!"
